The Deal for Students

Posted on: April 27th, 2012 by joel

If you ARE a University of Wales (full time) Student

You are in luck, there is a limited set of free tickets for you. Please get in touch and I’ll point you to the right person.

If you are a full time student elsewhere

There is an incredibly limited set of reduced price tickets for you here:

Please select the cryptically titled “Students (who are NOT UoWN)” ones…

To avoid tears, please bring full proof of your student(ness) when you register on the day. And no, a letter from your mum does not count.

If you are a student who has already bought a ticket, sorry, I can’t really do much about that. Hell, stop complaining! It’s pretty cheap as it is!…bloody students (mutter mutter 😉



Update & News for Students

Posted on: April 16th, 2012 by joel

Hi everyone!

Apologies for the quiet recently (I want on holiday by mistake last week, camping in the mud) & delay in getting the new website live, this is entirely my fault as I’m snowed under with other projects at the moment. It will get there though! I’m not panicing about getting it live asap as a) tickets are selling nicely at the mo and b) the main website is to be there for not only this May event but the ongoing, smaller, localhost events as well.

Ticket Sales

We’ve got just under 40 days to go before #p80N kicks off and there are only 25 standard tickets left. If you want to come, I would book now….

Students (Newport & Beyond)

As part of our deal with the University of Newport for hosting the event, we have set aside a number of tickets for university of Newport, full time students to attend free. These tickets will be managed by Newport Uni themselves but get in touch if you want to know more (they will supply me a link to their eventbrite listing soon).

However, if you are not a Newport Uni student then I’m hoping to offer the early bird deal for you (you’ll have to bring student proof etc with you on the day, if you try to cheat the system we’ll chain you to a lampost in Newport on a Friday night). There will be a very limited number of these so shout out if you want to be on the reserve list.

It’s exam time for students around then so if many can’t attend this may release a few tickets back into the main pot; we’ll see how it goes.

Other Stuff

Please also shout out if you’re interested in presenting at one of the localhost events, they will be smaller and less intimidating so it would also be ideal if you want to get used to public squeaking speaking.
